Action Alert: Tell Mayor DeBlasio That Jewish Children Need Kosher Grab & Go Meals


NYC has been providing three “Grab and Go” meals a day for all children under the age of 19 for many weeks now. However, according to NYC “all” does not appear to include children who keep kosher.

NYC is in the midst of a health and economic crisis. Families who keep kosher are struggling alongside the rest of NYC. Yet NYC leadership has not yet provided meals for the children in these families.

Please share this post with all your families and urge them to email Mayor DeBlasio and tell him that children who keep kosher also deserve to eat in times of crisis.

  1. We are so grateful that Lakewood has arranged for free kosher hot lunches for all children ages 2-18. It has been such a huge help over the last few weeks, and an exciting part of our daily schedule to go to the pickup locations where each lunch was individually packed with delicious variety.

  2. Every jewish school in nyc is receiving government funding at this time to give out to their students free breakfast & lunch meals. We go 2x a wk to our boys cheder to p/u food for our children which is a supply for 3 days. Please contact your child’s/children’s school.

  3. What? Almost all the Yeshivos and Beis Yaakovs are providing kosher Grab and Go meals. Are you saying these are not being paid for?
